The 500IDA9-IG reclocking distribution amplifier provides high quality distribution of facility 3G/HD/SD-SDI signals. This module features an autosensing equalized input which generates nine reclocked outputs and is especially useful projects where long cables runs are encountered.

Unlike other traditional DA's on the market, this module has been designed to support additional broadcast functionality such as signal monitoring, audio shuffling and loudness control. These features are standard features on this device therefore providing more value to an already high performance distribution amplifier!

The 500IDA9-IG is VistaLINK® capable, offering remote monitoring, control and configuration capabilities via Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) giving the flexibility to manage operations, including signal monitoring and module configuration from SNMP capable control systems (Manager or NMS)

This device:

  • Provides nine reclocked outputs from the 3G/HD/SD-SDI input
  • Provides enhanced signal reclocking and conditioning
  • Offers embedded mono audio channel shuffling
  • Offers award winning IntelliGain™ loudness control
  • Offers 5.1 to 2-channel stereo downmix (+DMX)
  • SNMP configuration via 7700FC Evertz frame controller

The 500IDA9-IG occupies one card slot and can be housed in the 3RU 500FR frame which has a 16 slot capacity. The 500FC or 500FC-DA-HD frame controller is required for configuration.
